Synopsis from Goodreads:
Liberty Beckett was so used to watching longtime crush Deacon McCrea ride at her family's Reckless, Arizona, arena, she nearly forgot the handsome cowboy was an attorney. But it won't be hard to remember now that Deacon is representing her father in the legal battle dividing the Beckett clan and threatening the Easy Money Rodeo Arena.
This case is Deacon's chance to clear his name in Reckless. He didn't anticipate the powerful effect Liberty would have on him. Their attraction is undeniable…and a huge conflict of interest. To save his career and Liberty's relationship with her family, Deacon knows he needs to avoid Liberty. But what a man needs and what he wants are two very different things….
McDavid’s intricate character development leaves you with a sense that everyone is the victim, yet everyone is the bad guy. The complex relationships between the characters, both business and personal, really make you consider all aspects of the situations at hand. The relationship between the main characters is a rollercoaster that in turn made me laugh, cringe, & want to sit them in a room alone together so they have to talk. Their relationships with the family made things that much more interesting.
As a whole, this was a fantastic read that has me hooked on this new to me author. I can’t wait to return to Reckless with her.
